ADO.NET :: Entity Framework - Allow Dollar Signs For Decimal Types?

Sep 5, 2010

Using ASP .Net 4.0,Entity Framework and EntityDataSource.

I have some currency fields that are defined as Decimal. I would like to allow the user to enter a (leading) dollar sign in these (TextBox form fields). Although, when the EntityDataSource goes to save the changes to the datbase, it throws:

Error while setting property 'QuotedMaterial': 'Cannot convert the value of parameter 'QuotedMaterial' to the type 'System.Decimal'.'.

Does anyone know how I can "tell" the EF to allow dollar signs and convert (drop) them accordingly? I am trying to avoid creating my own Data or Business Logic layer for this particular application. I would like to stick with the EntityDataSource and other
"built in" controls to minimize the C# code behind as much as possible.

I guess my only alternative is to deny $ (Dollar Signs) (and commas too for that mater, it doesn't like them either). The problem is I am porting a legacy application and I would like to keep it as close to the original as possible (and they are currently
allowed to enter dollar signs in this application). You see, they use copy/paste for data entry quote often on this particular form and it just so happens that the source data (they are copy/pasting from) always has a $ in it...

Forms Data Controls :: Dollar Value Displayed As Decimal From Database

Dec 6, 2010

I'm using a ListView control and have everything working the way I want, except the display of the data. I have an asp:Label control for each field, and if I have "Text='<%# Eval("MinimumValue") %>' " everything works fine, except the dollar values from the database are displayed as decimal values (how they are stored in the database). I tried adding .ToString("C") to the end of the Eval and I keep getting the same error. I've included the block of tests (with error) from my immediate window. Is the problem just that I'm on the aspx page and need to do formatting in the code behind?

Exporting Entity Framework 4 Data Model To Entity Framework 3.5?

Oct 25, 2010

Is there a way to export a EF 4.0 Data Model to EF 3.5?

I looked around and found that we are not able to access EF 4.0 from a ASP.Net 3.5 project here: [URL]

Our project is the 1st to go to .Net 4.0 using Entity Framework and we (the team) were wondering if there was a way for the other projects that "might" need to access our data that are still using the .Net 3.5 framework.

Entity Framework -Update Entity When Another Entity Is Updated

Jun 30, 2010

I have an EDM, it includes the entities extension and history. My goal is to use history to keep track of all the changes made to extension entity. For example, if extension with ID 223 has its property 'Name_Display' changed - I want the history entity to record this.

I'm using ASP.NET with VB.NET. Where in my code do I put the hook to say, "update the history entity" and what should that hook look like?

Cast Exception When Try To Insert Entity In Entity Framework (using Code-f)

Feb 9, 2011

I get an cast exception when i am trying to insert an entity in Entity Framework (using code-first). From this code :

public virtual T Insert(T entity)
return Context.Set<T>().Add(entity);

The cast exception is like "impossible to cast ...Collection'1(Entity) to type (Entity)" I can't figure out why. I am pretty sure ive done everything right. Post entity

public class Post
public long PostId { get; private set; }
public DateTime date { get; set; }
public string Subject { get; set; }
public User User { get; set; }
public Category Category { get; set; }
public string Body { get; set; }
public virtual ICollection<Tag> Tags { get; private set; }
public Post()
Category = new Category();
if (Tags == null)
Tags = new Collection<Tag>();

ADO.NET :: Entity Framework - Entity Stored Procedure Mapping - Can't Update

Feb 10, 2011

I am mapping a stored procedure to an entity by right clicking on the entity (in the .edmx) and selecting "Stored Procedure Mapping." This brings you to a Mapping Details - "Name of Entity" Window that allows you to select the insert, update, and delete stored procedures associated with the Entity. It also maps the stored procedure parameter to the Entity "Property" (Column).

I'm gettin an error "error 2042: Parameter Mapping specified is not valid." The cause of the error is fairly obvious, in the Insert stored procedure that has been selected, a 'CHAR' parameter is being mapped to an Int32 Entity Property. I altered the stored procedure parameter to match the entity, I deleted the stored procedure, readded, and reslected it as the Insert function. I also cleaned, validated, updated model from database. No matter what I do, the parameter list in the mapping details doesn't reflect the change to the stored procedure. It's stuck on a char --> int32 mapping, even though it has been changed, like it's buried deep in meta data some where.

ADO.NET :: Entity Framework Copy Entity And Change PK And Save Old And New

Mar 31, 2011

I have a stupid problem with the Entity Framework. I get the following Exception:


I have an entity with a 4 fields representing the primary key. I copy it via serialization (works fine). I set the old entity to not valid (Datefield set to a date in the past, this field is part of the PK) and set the copied entity to DateTime.Now.Date. When I call context.AddObject I get the Exception above. I tried copying the entity via reflection but the entity has 3-4 references. And when copied, I get another Exception before even Adding the entity to the context. I also tried setting newObj.EntityKey = null and reset all the fields neccessary for the PK. I just want a whole copy of an entity with a different primary key (and some other fields changed too) and Create it in the database.

ADO.NET :: Entity Framework: Getting Key Of Newly Inserted Entity?

Feb 3, 2011

Here's a simple code snippet where I create a new Entity object and call SaveChanges() to create a new record in the mapped database table.


What I'm trying to figure out is whether there is a way to derive this new key for my entity, e, from the ObjectContext, m? The reason for this is that the way my actual code is structured, my entity object is already out of scope at the point where I call the SaveChanges() method.

I've been trying to learn about the entity framework. I plan on using it in a rewrite of a site I'm doing.But everything I can find on it is on the 3.5 framework and they all mention that there will be changes in 4.0.

ADO.NET :: LINQ To SQL Vs Entity Framework

Aug 5, 2010

Im working on a greenfield project and have to make a decision on the technology we'll use for the data access layer. Ive used LINQ to SQL for a few years and am happy and comfortable with this, but now with entity framework available this is another method to consider. Are there any pitfalls using entity framework as opposed to LINQ to SQL ? Ive read that there are performance issues with entity framework, is this true? Id really like to get an overall feel for using one method over the other, anyone have any thoughts/comments/recomendations?
